The week’s video highlights – Warren over Brown in new poll – Occupy order lifted – Mitt in NH

MASSTERCLIPS: I’m proud to introduce a new feature this morning: MASSterClips – what you missed this week on TV. Our inaugural episode features Barney Frank comparing GOP presidential candidates to Wizard of Oz characters, Richard Tisei saying that John Tierney needs to come clean about his particular scandals and Jim Braude and guests talking casinos.

POLLING PLACES: A new UMass Lowell/Boston Herald poll has Elizabeth Warren up 49-42 over Sen. Scott Brown. (AP, Fox25, Sun)

OCCUPY: The days seem numbered for the Occupy movement’s camp in Dewey Square. The restraining order protecting the camp was removed yesterday, making the group vulnerable to eviction. (Globe, Herald) It’s cool though, since MassINC is going to solve the whole thing tonight, as you may have heard.

MITT MONITOR: WBUR drops in on one New Hampshire town to see how Mitt’s doing up there. Not as good as he’d like.
